RIP Peter Graves
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
I remember as a kid watching him on Mission Impossible. RIP

What a great way to go...drop dead after Sunday brunch, no hospital stay, no chemo, no surgery etc
The Minnesota native and brother of James Arness (Gunsmoke) has passed away. That was one talented family.
I was just talking about Peter Graves and reading him biography from Wikipedia last month.
It's very interesting how James Arness went to Hollywood first and then his "little brother" followed him out there.
Graves lived in the same neighborhood as young Barry Williams (Greg Brady) Barry would hound him and try and get tips and other acting tid-bits. Graves was pretty patient with the kid, Williams said he was insufferable at times.
James Arness's web site has for several weeks been indicating that he was not autographing items "at this time", which makes me wonder if Arness himself is in poor health. Arness will be 87 years old in May.
"Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
This one got me a little. I've long been comforted by the fact that Graves and Arness still lived, making me feel somewhat young. Not many of the actors I watched when I was small are still around.
His website also says he will be unable to attend his brother's funeral because he fell awhile back and cracked a rib and injured his shoulder, which has caused other physical difficulties with his arm and hands.
Growing up, Gunsmoke was a staple in our household as it was my Dad's favorite show. And when it came on, you definitely didn't sit in Dad's chair.
Even today, when Gunsmoke comes on in reruns, I can't help but think of my Dad.
For those interested, here's Pt 1 of a five part interview with Jim from 2002.
But I loved watching Mission Impossible growing up. I don't understand why it isn't being shown on cable in reruns?
So RIP Mr Graves.

"panic" only comes from having real expectations
